We’re getting closer! Find out what’s been happening at Memoto this week below and don’t forget to check the update archive if you’ve haven’t caught up with us recently. We’d also love to hear if anyone has utilized the dimensions of the camera we released a few weeks ago. Tell us about it!
We are analyzing the latest batch of PCBs for some yield-problems related to manufacturing (essentially weak solder joints), as well as continuing measurements and fine-tuning of the GPS antenna and RF path, which seem to work much better now and we can probably write more about this soon. We are also validating the USB electrical connection fixes we made based on our previous experience with EMI. As for the mechanics, work is done fine-tuning the plastic molds and plastic mixing to optimize the structural integrity of the clip holder, since this is the part which is exposed to the most stress. We are waiting this week for an updated version of our camera module, with an improved connector system since we had some troubles before with the electrical integrity of the current system. Basically, we need to be absolutely certain that a connector cannot come loose from vibrations during shipping or if you accidentally drop your camera.
Software and backend
We’ve been working on performance improvements in the both the OSX uploader, the iOS client and improving performance on iOS. Implementation of the new share interface we talked about last week has been central to this week’s work. Also, the addition of support for deleting photos and moments is almost finished!
Have a great weekend!
What do you mean “if you accidentally drop your camera” – dropping is real-life. We are so looking forward to getting our Memoto!
🙂 We’re looking forward to getting it to you soon! /SM
leaving for Japan on the 27th! Please!
Hi Derick! Does’t look like we’ll be shipping in the next 5 days. I hope your trip is fantastic and thanks for your support! /SM
Not a problem. I would rather you guys work out all the problems and send me something great than rush it out the door. Not my first time to Japan so it will be okay. I will be doing Paris in January and that will be my first time to Europe and am looking forward to using my Memoto Camera then!
I’m excited about this camera! I’m still hoping to have it by October 1st because that’s the day I leave to finally meet some one who has been special to me ever since managed to find them.
Hi Megan, We’re hoping that’s the case too. Sounds like this is just kind of occasion we had in mind while brainstorming reasons for creating Memoto! Stay tuned!! /SM
We are leaving to Oslo sept, 19th to run the Marathon there. I hope you will be able to ship the Memoto in time, because capturing the city during the marathon is exactly why I ordered this fantastic device!
